As an introduction to live steam locomotive construction the two 3½ in. gauge tank engines in this book are hard to beat. The 0-6-0T Rob Roy has been a favourite choice since the 1950's and was the subject of an earlier book which, effectively, has now been combined with the 1982 William design, a slightly more advanced 2-6-0T locomotive which has proved equally popular. Each engine is treated separately in detailed constructional notes which leave not even the tiniest part unexplained; a complete beginner without contact with other model engineers could confidently tackle either or both of these locomotives, provided that he has a lathe and some experience of using it.
Complete drawings, reduced from the full-size plans where are available separately, are included, together with photographs of constructional stages and completed locomotives.
